I have Premiere Elements 19 and have tried the published fix where a new layout file is downloaded and replaces the previous layouts. I followed these instructions accurately, tried it twice, and the controls are still blocked by the bottom menu bar. I'm on a windows laptop.
Can you please help me determine if there is a fix that works? It is very cumbersome to work on a laptop-sized screen. It appears, from all the threads I've read, that this problem has been going on for years. If the Adobe-published fix doesn't work, why can't they provide a true fix. Seems silly.
